Richard Herring's Edinburgh Fringe Podcast: 2011 #23: Rumpel and Matt Kirshen

After yesterday's debacle where the podcast got recorded on the wrong setting - Chris at The Stand 'accidentally' forgets to record the opening of today's show - which is coincidentally the bit where I am slagging him off for his incompetence. Weird. My first guest today is someone who Phil Nichol was talking a lot about yesterday, eccentric street performer, Rumpel - the Worldly Kangeroo Fool of Oz - and it turns out that either Nichol has a very good imagination (where the things he think take physical form) or this is a real man. He says something that I think is the funniest thing in all 23 podcasts so far. Then the relatively sane Matt Kirshen is on hand to talk about which order you should rape and kill a tramp in, men's nipples and performing in a meeting room at a hotel. Episode 23 is a podcast packed with actual insanity and unpleasantness and laughs. Let's just hope it all recorded OK.
